Good for you
Though there is still debate about meat products being unhealthy, there is much science that supports the benefits of refraining from them, especially
in particular, which
contributes to cancer. Animal fat is taxing to digest and contributes to arterial plaque and distorts healthy gut bacteria flora. My Paleo friends
will contest this, but I say do some research to best determine what is right for oneself.
This is just my opinion however and I do not wish for this thread to become a meat is bad/good debate.
Juicing or smoothies...yes awesome! My roomie got a 1000 watt ninja blender and we make healthy smoothies. I like smoothies better than juicing
because it is less expensive and provides more sustenance. A juice extractor requires a good load of fruits and veggies with a low return ratio on
output. Smoothies provide more fiber and goodness.
A tip I have been sharing with others is how to utilize greens without them spoiling before use. I take Kale, Chards, Spinach and Collard Greens,
blend them all together with water and then pour them into ice cube trays for freezing. Then each day I take 4 to 6 cubes, 1/2 to 1 cup of
blueberries, 3rd of a beet, 1 banana, cup of baby carrots, 1/2 cup almond milk and a tablespoon of chia seed( a great energy source), and two cups of
water for consistency. Most smoothies are actually bad because they have more sugary fruit than anything, so adding more veggies to the mix is
better, especially for daily intake. We are suppose to have 2 to 3 cups of fruits/veggies per day, and I wasn't getting that regularly. I am a big
proponent of B-vitamins and greens is the best source for that, and much better than taking supplements.
So keep it up and here's to healthy living < raises smoothie cup >
